Christopher Chalcraft

Christopher Chalcraft has a B.Sc. from McGill University in Physics & Geophysics. After working for three years for CGGVeritas doing seismic data processing, he has returned to the University of Calgary to complete an M.Sc. in Geophysics (in progress) focussing primarily on reservoir characterization and signal analysis.

He has a varied background starting out in a research lab at McGill University studying gas hydrates gaining experience in forward modelling and AVO. His experience with CGGVeritas was both in the office working in the depth imaging group, as well as doing processing and QC onboard a seismic acquisition vessel based in SE Asia.

Chris is a duplicate bridge player and has represented Canada in international events while playing for the Canadian Junior Bridge Team. When not working in the field or playing bridge, Chris enjoys street photography and collecting vintage cameras.

Chris joined OpenGeoSolutions in 2012.

Chris is the third drummer that has joined OpenGeoSolutions....no more drummers please.
